VALENTINE (dictionary definition): a person to whom one sends a romantic card on Saint Valentine’s Day, 14 February   

See, you don’t have to be part of a couple to be a Valentine! For anyone reading this, if I’m your Valentine, please feel free to enclose a gift card/voucher for any of my favourite shopping havens so I can purchase the following items from my wish-list! Thank you x

I've always said I would treat myself to another pair of Louboutins; after I saw Miss Kim Kardashian sporting these fluorescent beauties I started topping up my shoe fund!

This perfume by Estee Lauder is a limited-edition fragrance that only retails in Spring (or year round in duty free). I therefore tend to stock up in March to see me through the rest of the year.
I know the Satchel trend has been around for a while now, but I’m still inspired by it and therefore want to treat myself to another colour for Spring/Summer from The Cambridge Satchel Company collection.

As the House of Fraser tagline goes, there really is ‘Temptation On Every Level’. I have my eye on these Firetrap flare jeans - just pair with something black and I'm bang on trend!

I rarely write beauty posts, but don’t deduce that I don’t wear make up – I do, I just don’t like writing about it. Among my friends and family, I tend to shout about Bobby Brown cosmetics; they work well with my skin tone. My make up bag is well over-due a Spring replenish.

The last time I bought a pair of Victoria's Secret's I was in Tampa, Florida - they had no stores in the UK at the time. I bought a set of 3 briefs and they were the best underwear investment I ever made in terms of appearance, fit and quality; I was gutted I didn't buy more. Fortunately, the first UK store launched in  London’s Westfield Centre in Summer 2012 and I intend to stock up!

Whilst on the subject of cards, love and money, I thought I would post a picture of a card I bought (yes I bought myself a card) recently, which depicts my thought process perfectly!

Let me know what Valentine gifts you receive, and hopefully I will be lucky enough to tell you about any that I get!
